Level 1 Workshop Registration

Level 2 Workshop Registration




Clinical Workshop Level 1
Why pursue training in Clinical Hypnosis? What are the benefits?

The Level 1 workshop, the first part of a series of workshops in the certification program for clinical hypnosis, is intended for licensed health professionals including physicians, nurses, psychologists, dentists, counselors, social workers, and those in related fields. A diverse faculty from a range of health disciplines will teach the principles and process of hypnotic inductions, suggestions, and treatment. The workshop is a mix of didactic presentations, demonstrations, experiential exercises, and faculty-led small group practice tailored to the specific needs and learning styles of each participant. At the conclusion of the workshop participants will have been taught the basic skills required to utilize clinical hypnosis and begin to apply it to their practice.


 Level 1 Sample Workshop Curriculum


Clinical Workshop Level 2
What are the advantages of more training in Clinical Hypnosis?  

The second step in certification training is to strengthen skills, strategies, and applications of clinical hypnosis. Part one taught “how to” do clinical hypnosis, and part two builds on this skill set and refines and furthers development to add the when, why, and where to the “how-to”.


The Level 2 workshop increases skills and builds confidence in the use of hypnosis. It prepares the workshop participant to move on to the Advanced Workshop level and Individual Consultation with a strong basis of skills and understanding of the principles and practice of clinical hypnosis.

 Level 2 Sample Workshop Curriculum


Advanced Level Workshops

Advanced Level Workshops are offered throughout the year.  Recent professional training workshops have focused on behavioral medicine, health psychology, hypnosis and pediatrics, and mind-body medicine.

Advanced level workshop participants are encouraged to complete Level 1 and Level 2 training. Skills mastered in these workshops ensure comprehension and applicability of the material.
